What are you claiming for?

loss of earnings

Thank you if you have suffered a loss of earnings, small claims court may not be the best way forward. Can you give me a little understanding about what has happened and then I can advise on the best jurisdiction to use. Thank you. I look forward to hearing from you. R.

Mayor of London has cut the life of London cab from 15 too 12 years therefore cutting 3 years loss of earnings

Ok I understand. So this would be a civil action so you as long as it falls within the small claims limit of £10k the it would be small claims if it is more than this then you want to use what is called the ordinary cause procedure. You will be challenging a change of law which can be done, it is not easy and you will have to rely on case law to support your claim. Therefore I would advise that you instruct a solicitor to help you with this. If you are successful then you could potentially look at having your costs covered.

I hope this information has helped. You can find a local solicitor who deals with this on the law society webpage which is;

I would be obliged if you could Click the 5 stars at the top of the webpage (this will not cost any extra). This will tell the website that I have responded to your question, you can, of course, continue to ask any follow up questions free of charge. I won’t be paid for my time from the website if there is no rating left for me.

Many Thanks
